Dazed and Confused
« on: October 22, 2012, 01:30:46 AM »
I never understood why so many people like this movie. At least with Fast Times at Ridgemont High I can sorta see the appeal.
"as [you've] informed us that respect chills love, it is natural to conclude that all your pretty flights arise from your pampered sensibility; and that, vain of this fancied preeminence of organs, you foster every emotion till the fumes, mounting to your brain, dispel the sober suggestions of reason. It is not in this view surprising that when you should argue you become impassioned, and that reflection inflames your imagination instead of enlightening your understanding." - Mary Wollstonecraft

Gonna disagree with you on this one. I think Dazed and Confused is much better than "Fast Times". It's one of my favorite movies man!  :)

Never watched either one...actually, never even heard of the "Dazed and Confused".
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
—St. Isaac of Syria

I always think of the creepy line from Matthew McConaughey's character in Dazed and Confused when I see a guy in his 20s hanging out with high school students: "That's what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older, they stay the same age."
Blessed Nazarius practiced the ascetic life. His clothes were tattered. He wore his shoes without removing them for six years.
